Nominations for the 2022 Community Policing Awards are now open.

The nominations will be collated and sifted down to a shortlist before they are put to a panel of judges who will make the final decision of who the community champions are.

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
Hi, I am Valerie Pike, Chair of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association. The Association was formed in September 2019 and our objective was simply to help residents. In setting up the Association, we asked
How can each of us
· help to make our community safer?
· improve its spirit and neighbourliness?
· help the Police to reduce local crime?
· make our own home security better?
Starting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street is easy, and it’s free. Police statistics show that a Neighbourhood Watch scheme significantly reduces the probability of your house being burgled.
Neighbourhood Watch is about neighbourliness and making our communities and homes safer. It’s about being friendly and caring, and watching out for the elderly and vulnerable too.
Members of Neighbourhood Watch are assisted in a number of ways, including having free home security surveys conducted by a local PCSO, to identify any areas in which security can be improved, and to advise on optimum ways to safeguard against crime and improve personal and household security
But most of all Neighbourhood Watch is about helping the Police to keep us safe. They need the support of people who care. If that’s you - join us now!
Please contact us on email@example.com and we will be delighted to assist.
